Spice Girls Celebrate 25th Anniversary of “Wannabe”

It’s been 25 years since the Spice Girls debut hit single “Wannabe” and they’re celebrating it with the launch of a new campaign and limited edition EP.

The Spice Girls have launched the #IAmASpiceGirl campaign, a global celebration of the pioneers of people power. The band is inviting fans to take to social media and the Spice Girls website to tell your story of how there is a Spice Girl in all of us.

The band says, “The Spice Girls belong to everyone and that’s why we want to mark 25 years of “Wannabe” by celebrating our incredible fans.”   

An all-new limited edition EP, Wannabe25, will be available to stream from July 9th and to get a physical copy from July 23rd. The EP will be released on vinyl and cassette.
